Iopidine 0.5% eye drops are primarily used for the short-term adjunctive treatment of chronic glaucoma in patients who are already on maximally tolerated medical therapy and require additional help in lowering intraocular pressure (IOP).

Apraclonidine, the active ingredient in Iopidine eye drops, is an alpha-2 adrenergic receptor agonist. It works by reducing the production of aqueous humor (fluid in the eye) and increasing its outflow, leading to a decrease in IOP.

Use and Dosage

This medication is given as an eye drop as directed by your doctor, usually 3 times daily.

If you are wearing contact lenses, remove them before using eye drops. Wait at least 15 minutes before replacing your contact lenses.

To apply eye drops, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, be careful not to touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface.

Tilt your head back, look up, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Hold the dropper directly over your eye and place 1 drop into the pouch. Release the eyelid and gently close your eyes. Place one finger at the corner of your eye (near the nose) and apply gentle pressure for 1 to 2 minutes. This will prevent the medication from draining out. Try not to blink and do not rub your eye. Repeat these steps with your other eye if so directed or if your dose is for more than 1 drop.

Remove extra solution around the eye with a tissue and wash your hands to remove any medicine that may be on them.

If you are using another kind of eye medication (such as drops or ointments), wait at least 5 minutes before using the other medication. Use eye drops before ointments to allow the eye drops to enter the eye.

Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Do not increase your dose or use it more often than prescribed. When used for an extended time, this medication may not work as well and may require different dosing. Your doctor will monitor your progress with regular eye exams.
